Volunteer Your Voice

Join us to build a movement to end hunger -- use your voice to advocate for programs that combat hunger and poverty to make sure everyone has enough to eat today and every day. Most food assistance in this country comes from the government in the form of SNAP (food stamps), school meals and other programs, so policy matters and your voice matters in the fight to end hunger. We want our legislators to hear the message loud and clear: no one should go hungry and we all need to work together to drive hunger from our communities today and end hunger forever.

Take Action Now

SNAP (food stamps) have come under attack time and time again under this administration. We need to make sure our legislators know that SNAP is an effective and critical program. Even small cuts to SNAP would be devastating, and Philabundance would not be able to fill the gap. Two-thirds of SNAP participants are children, seniors, or people with disabilities, and the majority of others are working. We cannot take away this vital support as people try to get back on their feet. Sign a petition or Call your representatives today and tell them that SNAP needs to be strengthened, not cut!

Join our Food Waste Reduction Policy Efforts

40% of food in the US goes to waste, while 1 in 8 Americans go hungry. We at Philabundance are confronted daily by the upsetting paradox of an abundance of food waste and the abundance of hungry people. As much as we are doing to rescue food in our communities, there is so much more that can be done. New legislation, regulations and clarifications of existing laws could go a long way towards increasing food donations and reducing unnecessary waste. For this reason, we commissioned the Harvard Law School Food Law and Policy Clinic to create a report on this topic: “Moving Food Waste Forward: Policy Recommendations for Next Steps in Pennsylvania”. Out of this, came Philabundance’s top 7 priorities. We hope that this report and accompanying materials will serve as educational resources and conversation-starters. If you are interested in joining our efforts to reduce food waste and fight for better food policies, please email sustainability@philabundance.org.
